5:02 pm
the community and an interfaith vigil. ther joining together and healing the community. it is it a difficult and long road ahead when you think about the victims in this case. and so many lives lost and 12 little girls and eight little boys and six women. two of the women killed were so young. beginning their careers in education . in their twens and one just 30 years old and all of these women trying to protect the children. the youngest victim named noah. you look at the list of the children's names and the names you hear in classrooms all over america. charlotte, and anna, and daniel. tiny little people cut down before they so much much life. that's what president obama talk body the lives that were
5:03 pm
cut short. the medical examiner talking about the tragedy and giving a picture of what happened in the school. not unexpected details. we knew they were going to be horrible but the extent of the detail was clinical. nearly all of the victims had multiple gun hot. three-len gun shot wounds and those are the folks he had a chance to examine himself. he participated in 7 of the exams personally. the paperwork is completed and now, it is time for the families to have a chance to see their loved ones and experience the great loss and in the coming days, funerals and memorial services and a very long road to recovery for the community. governor. >> molly, thank you for your report there in newtown. >> maybe it is simplep the attempt to express our
5:04 pm
collective shock when we say we are trying to make sense of the horrific shooting in the sandy hooks elementary school. it is it not sense to a rational human being. the governor malloy got it right when he said eril visited the community. president obama spoke more as a parent than a politician and quoted the bible to bring comfort to the nation. churches were filled in newtown, connecticut last night as candlelight vigils were held to grieve for the 27 innocent people killed and those shattered by the crazed carnage. on friday, neal cavuted me, where was god in we have systematically removed god from our schools and public account activities and at the moment of the calamity we wonder where it was.
5:05 pm
the liberal wave had a violent and jumped to the conclusion that if i said prayer was in school the shooting would not have happen. i said nothing of the sort. it is far more than prayer and bible reading. it is it the fact that people sue a city so we have no major 16 or christmas carol churches and christian owned businesses are told to surrender the values under the edict of the government orders to provide tax-funded abortion pills . we say things are sinful and say they are disorders and sometimes we say they are normal and have to abandon bed rock memioral truths, we were, where was god? why escorted him out of our culture and marched him out of the public square and then
5:06 pm
surprised that a culture reflects what it is it become. as soon as the tragedy unfolded he showed up. in the lives of teachers who put their lives between the gunmen and the students and in policemen who rush school not knowing if they would be met with a barage of students. and hugs and tierce of parents and teachers that lived through the slaughter and overflowed church services where people lit candles and prayed he showed up in the white house where the president envoked his name and quoted from his book then in a few days, we'll god to excuse himself. and announce in our arrogant pride that we have evolved beyond needing him and someone will suggest we have a law to stop this. we don't have to pass a new one. there is one that works if we
5:07 pm
teach and observe it. shaw shalt not kill. there are nine others. but to tell them about that would require bringing god back and we know how unacceptable that might be. geraldo rivary is standing by in newtown, but more importantly geraldo, i can't think of any major american trannel dee that you have not seen up close and personal in the last 40 years. how does this one compare to the tragic events that you cover as a reporter in the past four decades. >> governor, let me if i may, start by you know, giving you a electronically a big embrace and agreeing with you. this crime, this crime, this atrocity was a godless act and that this perpetrator was in
5:08 pm
every way the devil incarnate here on earth. he was the agent of the apocalypse. ip am not a preacher, i have an unusual as you know thelogical background, my jewish mother and catholic father. but it is impossible for me to miss the point that were this a faith-based young man, he could not possibly have perpetrated the evil. this was not just crime. this was evil. this was debase. this was something that so utterly beyond the realm of appropriate civilized conduct. this was someone who wanted to inflict pain and in inflicting pain, he chose the most vulnerable victims, six years old and 7 years old in first grade and took that big gun
5:09 pm
and posing as if he was a ninja car war garbed in black and stuck it to the terrified children and ended their lives and shot them again and again and again. this is it, governor, that no correspondant has seen this kind of carnage here in new england, in a beautiful 300 year old community to which people flock would for its safety and its security and traditions and churches, and its surrenity. he perpetrated an obscenity. if this is not the devil at work, i don't know what it is, goch goch. >> i can't imagine the grief and pain that you have seen there. as you have been there, people appreciate the media bringing attention to the plight and then there comes a time when
5:10 pm
they want people to leave and they need peace. are they they at that point or do they appreciate the attention that is it foc oused on newtown, connecticut. >> i have to worry that this way. i got here late intentionally i have been an observer much more an observer than a reporter. i felt an absolute queasiness about going up to people anding them. we used intermediaries to see if they shared the store storses. crig my brother was here all day yesterday and some responded with bitterness at the intrusion. and others are thankful for the compassion and the support. i am sure that the healer in chief, and the president gets here tomorrow night, he will be able to let everyone in the count, who said they don't know and most of them do, that
5:11 pm
the world ask nation is unite that we are all parents of these children and tonight, as people watch, and hug their children, that's the best way we can fight back against this obscene deal and mini holocaust. i never use the expression holocaust it connotes the most dreadful thing that happens in the human suspicious. that was for the 20 children the holocaust and that evil that this man perpetrated against them was as much like the evil the nazies perpetrated as kidnapping i can think much. >> geraldo, thank you for joining us in newtown, connecticut. you will have a live show later this evening from newtown. and we know folks will want to watch that at 10 o'clock eastern time. thank you for joining us.
